An Taoiseach Enda Kenny T.D., and Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton TD made the announcement while officially opening the company’s new 27,000 sq ft EU Headquarters in Dublin’s city centre today.
Qualtrics has been supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
Speaking at the official opening today, Taoiseach Enda Kenny T. D., said, “The creation of 100 new jobs in Dublin by Qualtrics is great news for Ireland’s reputation as a location for young, innovative digital companies. These new jobs will contribute to the goal of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs to create 100,000 new jobs by 2016. When Qualtrics first decided to establish its operations in Ireland, it did so because of the talent available here, Ireland’s pro-business environment and our proximity to European markets. This has proved to be a winning combination over the past 18 months with the company planning to further expand its headcount to 250 jobs by 2017.”
Qualtrics, which was founded in Utah, is one of the fastest growing tech companies in the US and closed a $150 million Series B financing round. Qualtrics was co-founded by CEO Ryan Smith in 2002. Today, it is one of the fastest growing technology companies in the world. The company works with top brands across every major industry including Kelloggs, Stanford University, Yankee Candle, HP and Cisco. The Qualtrics platform is used by enterprises, academic institutions, and government agencies to collect, analyse, and act on the voice of the customer, allowing organisations to understand and measure customer satisfaction, and to test brand, market and product concepts with their customers. Qualtrics is also used by companies to undertake employee engagement programs, and manage employee feedback. Qualtrics is investing in Europe to meet the growing demand for business insights in the region; Ireland is Qualtrics first international office and the company also has offices in Seattle, Dallas and Sydney, Australia.
Welcoming the announcement Martin Shanahan said: “Ryan has been hugely complimentary of his staff here in Ireland – he’s spreading the word on why Ireland is a great place to do business. For us in IDA Ireland, the value of endorsements from CEO’s like this cannot be overstated. Qualtrics choice of Dublin as their European Headquarters is yet another top level endorsement from a rapidly growing company on the tech scene. From their office here in Stephen’s Green, they will be able to deliver top level service to their European customers.“
